LEO: Portrait of Retired Judge  LE Op. 433


Portrait of Retired Judge.


October 16, 1981


It is not improper to place a portrait of a retired judge in his former

courtroom or in another location in the court's building where he and

members of his firm regularly practice. Although no impropriety would

result from such action, it might be more tasteful to use the alternate

location rather than the courtroom. Lawyers in the firm in which the

former judge practices should be alert not to trade upon the former status

of their partner in violation of DR:9-101(C).
